On Thursday night it was Eagles 34, Texans 24. Philadelphia came back to win in the fourth quarter, which going into today puts them at the top of the NFC East and Houston at the bottom of the AFC South.
The Giants will need to beat Washington today to keep pace with their division rivals while the Cowboys are at the struggling (for them anyway) Colts. Also today, the AFC West-leading Chiefs host the Broncos after Kansas City Coach Todd Haley refused to shake Denver Coach Josh McDaniels' hand after they were blown out and the Broncos kept piling on in Denver. The team in the NFC driver's seat, Atlanta, visits NFC South rival Tampa Bay later this afternoon on a field not fully recovered from yesterday's Big East Championship game.
Tonight, the battle for the AFC North continues with the 8-3 Ravens hosting the 8-3 Steelers. Baltimore won earlier in the season, which was the last game of QB Ben Roethlisberger's suspension. Roethlisberger is likely to be less mobile than usual as he injured his foot last week.
Monday Night Football has one of the biggest match-ups of the week with the AFC East on the line. The 9-2 Patriots will visit the 9-2 Jets in a game that may very well decide the division (and perhaps the conference, where they have the top records). New York won in week 2, 28-14.
